Statement from the Partnership for New York City on Meetings with President Trump and on Capitol Hill

April 03, 2017

The Partnership for New York City is in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, April 4, for meetings with President Trump and other federal officials. Over 50 CEOs representing New York’s largest private sector employers will participate in a series of conversations with Cabinet Members, Senior White House Officials and leaders of Congress to advocate for federal policies that promote the continued growth and economic vitality of New York City and our country’s other urban centers.

With an economic impact of over $740 billion annually, New York City stands apart as a hub for innovation and opportunity for Americans. Keeping the city at the forefront of global markets requires cooperation at every level of government. In addition to sharing their expertise, Partnership members are looking to learn more about lawmakers and White House goals for enhanced public and private collaboration. Specific topics on the agenda include plans to build bi-partisan support for modernizing infrastructure, improving workforce and job training programs, enhancing national and cyber security, and reforming tax and regulatory policies.
